Low Heart Rate Training works!
May 11, 2015
In late March, I decided to change over my exercise regime to use the Maffetone Method - a low heart rate training regime intended to increase aerobic capacity. Essentially, you ensure that all your exercise stays within a specific heart rate range, and never break out of that range - even if you have to walk to stay in it. The theory is that as your aerobic capacity increases, the intensity of activity you can sustain and stay within that heart range will also increase (ie, you get faster and faster at the same heart rate).
